A lekythos is a type of Ancient Greek vessel used for storing oil , especially olive oil. It has a narrow body and one handle attached to the neck of the vessel, and is thus a narrow type of jug, with no pouring lip;
These vessels were very popular during the 5th century BC, however there are many that have been found dating all the way back to 700 BC. The lekythos was used for anointing dead bodies of unmarried women and many lekythoi are found in tombs. The images on lekythoi were often depictions of daily activities or rituals. They contained a perfumed oil which was offered either to the dead person or to the gods of the underworldThe Lekythos was used to smear perfumed oil on a woman's skin before getting married and were placed in tombs to allow the unmarried woman to prepare for a wedding in the afterlife.
